If it was pure synthetic, watch for oil leakage. Spots on the floor, stuff like that.
The adage for quite a while now has been, if your engine has put on a fair amount of miles with regular oil and you suddenly change to synthetic, it will bleed oil from anyplace that can....the more miles on the engine, the worse the leakage.
If its a Synthetic blend, the bleeding might not be so bad, since its a blend of straight synthetic and regular oil.
...and just because its not bleeding out anywhere you can see (like the valve cover), that doesn't mean its not making it past the valve seals and piston rings and is being blown out the exhaust.
I put full sun in my ‘08 XL 2.3L at 1st oil change when new. Now with 177K miles no oil burn, no oil leaks. Changed oil and filter every 5K miles.
I bought mine from auction with 158k no history known, I put full syn in it with no issues. Restore also

I did too.
I have 195000+ on my 2.3. I started with full synthetic at about 100000 miles . No leakage and no oil consumption !
...we go some lucky truck owners here!
MotorCraft full syn for me!! 161,000 miles, no leaks, drips, or smoke
Switched to high mileage full synthetic at 154K several weeks ago. No leaks visible yet.
Update: December 9: It has been about 3 months now since the switch to synthetic. Still no leaks.
I have used synthetic oil on my truck for years. I have no complaints.
